# Basic Math/Thousands, Hundreds, Tens, & Ones

Question
Hello:

How is \$8,281 expressed in even thousands of dollars; in even hundreds of dollars; in even tens of dollars; and in even ones of dollars?

For example, \$8,281 in even thousands of dollars is \$8,000.  Is the method of subtracting the hundred's amount of \$281 from \$8,281 the only method used? Is this idea just the same as rounding numbers?

It's exactly the same as rounding.  As you pointed out , 8281 rounded to the nearest thousands is 8000, to the nearest hundreds is 8200, the nearest tens is 8280.  Since there are no cents, it is already rounded to the nearest dollar.  I believe when they are asking for "even" numbers, they mean whole numbers as opposed to even as in opposite of odd.
